and i'm essentially quite private, so i never liked the public side of what i used to do at all. and so i am very much a home person. there is no place in the world i want to be more than home. and so, whatever was happening here i think i held it built-in immunity to it. >> host: canton ohio you have been very patient you are on with author and activist randall robinson. >> caller: hello mr. robinson. is great to hear and i'm originally from mississippi and grew up in this south where my parents graduated from school. i dropped out of school but eventually i went back and went to college and moved to ohio and got a job. even the church and some time that people buy your history in america and how we treat one another and even the slavery. i'm a big fan of frederick douglass also. in a piece that he wrote, he writes the real question that all commanding question here is whether american justice and american liberty and american civilization, the american christianity can be made to include and protect all the rights of all american children. as black people we feel not educated by histo

to be here to let people know, for people to let me know they are praying for us, that they are with us, that they are supporting us, that is what gives us the fuel to keep going. we have that drive because just like trade on -- just like trayvon martin, a am sure you have children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews that you have to care about as well. gary difficult to stomach the fact that trayvon martin wasn't committing any crime, he was on his way home from the store so how many of your teenagers go to the store? that is how close it will hit home. that is my message. don't wait. don't wait until it is at your front door. don't wait until something happens to your child, your niece, your nephew, your grandson or granddaughter or godson. don't wait. this is the time to act, now. this is the time to get involved and don't just say i support the foundation, i support the family, i think they're doing a great job. that is good but it has to be more than that. we have created through the negative energy, negative energy when you are disappointed, negative energy when you have a loss. we

to influence judges in personal relationships or i use a different way, when people come in front of my commission i take the vantage of the opportunity to ask probing questions which you tend to see some times when you are lawyers, mostly you believe you should be judges because you are entitled to it or you are qualified. that is part of it. i tend to think you want people with a high sense of consciousness. one of us was john steal from chicago who told his story one day and he said he was serving as an appellate court judge and ran across a case, the person was released from jail, the appellate judge, i was so moved by his conviction because i sat on the appellate commission, federal district commission, i saw those type of people who feel so compelled by simple justice that they were led by that more so than believing that they were so qualified by a judge and that is why they should be appointed so we should use the opportunity to make sure those who are going to sit there as judges have a high sense of consciousness about delivering justice, not just the fact that it is time for

learn from this data set be put in exo which didn't work and still use microsoft excel to analyze this data. we learned half the population of camden uses an emergency room or hospital in one year, someone went 324 times in five years, someone went 113 times in one year. we the public spend $108 million a year for camden presidents, 79,000 people, to go over and over i [talking over each other] over to the hospital. twice as much, we and america spend twice as much as the health care system and we can do amazing things for people but i don't believe we are getting our money's where, $2.8 trillion, 18% of our economy. i can't get my head around the number that big. i know what that will buy and for 1% of that, you can buy five of me. there are only 15 primary care in camden and all getting boarded up. we have to reinvest the money on the front line of care rather than building more hospitals and expanding emergency rooms, and at incredibly high price if you cut in that and hospitalize and we set a lower price if you talk to people and the market has responded, if you look at every

more about us than we know about them. when i got to tanzania in 1970 i recall talking to a kid who was 14 years old, is name was godfrey and he approached me in the street and started talking to me about thomas jefferson and jeffersonian democracy and i was stunned because there were teachers i knew and americans generally you couldn't find tanzania on a matter. they know more about you than you know about them. that is sad. exceptionalism has cost us knowledge of much of the world. one can liken it to your years in high school when you knew the kids who finished ahead of you but you can't remember anybody in the class behind you. we happen to think people because they are for or less important, a sad state to be in. >> host: with all due respect, i think your words further in title many blacks to find excuse instead of getting to work and doing better. we all have our injustices' to overcome. you are speaking of 200 years ago. is >> guest: let me use human rights language. say the criteria were not just race but race, color, religion, nationality, political opinion, you take any o

and governs us. frederick hayek once said he thought we do not value freedom until it has been lost. i certainly hope he was wrong. thank you very much. [applause] >> thank you. we have responses from two experts so we start with wayne abernathy of the american bankers association. >> of pleasure to be on this panel and to read the book and to read it ahead of time before it got out of print. i need to say my comments are my own, these don't represent particularly those views of the american bankers association. i am on my own ticket in what i presented a. i hold in my hand a copy of monetary history of the united states, 1867-1960 by milton friedman and jacobson schwartz. in several important ways this is a landmark book especially because of chapters 7 through 9. those chapters begin what has become the reputation of what until then was the nearly undisputed narrative of what had caused the great depression. since then, because of their careful detail, their historical accuracy and i think they're very sound reasoning, friedman and schwartz demonstrated federal reserve monetary polic

people you see here where volunteers that worked with us for a year. they worked as home coaches on the fields and behind them is one of our nurses. turns out a lot of this work, we don't need more doctors, we need more committed nurses, social workers and young people on the front line knocking on doors, going to people's homes, going to the bedside and helping patients navigate our incredibly complex challenging health care system. her story is she and her family were overwhelmed by that ventilator, they were terrified of it. if you imagine what it is like hooked up to a ventilator and then anxiety was driving her back to the hospital over and over. the insurance company let her go to a long-term care unit for a little while, enough time for the family to get trained on how to manage the ventilator and form a care team with her primary care provider and palm enologist and she hasn't been back to the hospital. there are certain people who like to be in the hospital. if you are homeless living in tent city, having a flat screen tv and three meals is probably a good thing but for
